Upside Brown

What can “brown” do for you? Our latest Brewmaster’s Obsession Series ale turns your world upside down. The use of wild Brettanomyces yeast makes the beer more complex – yet magically more drinkable at the same time. The challenge to tame wild yeast is an obsession that drives our

brewers, and fuels a passion for making great beer.

Upside Brown has a dark amber,deep copper hue with good clarity and a slightly off-white head. Fruit-filled aromas are dominated by pineapple and cherry, rounded out with a touch of farmyard funk. Sweet malt character is balanced by brett tartness with underlying flavors of cherry and dark fruits. Lively carbonation, dry and tart with a medium-light body. This fine ale can also evolve - cellar for a dryer and more

pronounced brett presence. 7% ABV

Available for a limited time in 750 ml bottles Oct 2014.

2014 Belgian Independence Day IPA

Belgian brewers historically tip-toed around the edges of hoppy beers. But recently Belgian brewers have changed their stance on hop-forward beers and are now diving into them with full steam. For those who can never have “enough” hops, we toast this juicy Belgian-style IPA and invite them to join in our Belgian Independence Day celebrations.

Light, golden amber hue, slightly hazy with a thick and persistent white head with Belgian lacing. Aroma is intensely fruity and tropical with notes of blueberry, melon, pineapple and mango with underlying grapefruit. The palate is dominated with juicy hop character with sweet ripe fruit flavors and a citrus twang. Moderate to strong bitterness and a fairly low malt flavor profile allows the hop profile to shine. A moderately, yet not cloying bitter finish.

Cooperstown Ale

Baseball and beer. Few things are more ingrained in America's psyche than baseball and beer. The histories of both are laden with traditions and transcendence. Rascals and radicals. Celebration and shared experience. Treasured summertime moments with sun on our faces and a beer in our hands. The timeless game defines our past and guides our future.

Lightly golden-straw hue with a lasting thick, white head. Aromas of sweet malt, floral with slight citrus are followed by delicate herbal notes. Faintly sweet giving way to mellow, lightly floral hop flavor and notes of banana and pears from our signature house yeast. Nicely balanced with a clean herbal-hopped finish makes this an enjoyably, quaffable ale.

Available for a limited time in 1/2 barrel and 12oz 4-packs starting June 1st.

FIRE & BLOOD

Named after the motto of House Targaryen, Fire & Blood was inspired by Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons; Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. To celebrate the rebirth of dragons, three different labels have been created, each depicting one of Daenery's feared dragons.

Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

Available in limited quantities in 750ml bottles & 1/6 BBL kegs beginning late March 2014.

Glimmerglass

Author James Fenimore Cooper gave the name 'Glimmerglass' to the beautiful body of water that graces Cooperstown. Nestled between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring.

Deep straw to light amber in color with a thick, pure white head. The saison yeast strain gives off fruity aromas of pear, apple and slight citrus balanced with a delicate floral hop character and a touch of spiciness. Taste is very clean, with pronounced fruit flavors, delicate bready malt followed by welcomed spicing. Crisp finish with lingering yet subtle notes of yeast and touches of fruity pepper.

Available for a limited time each Spring in 12oz bottles and 1/2 bbl kegs.

Fleur de Houblon

Nothing is more evocative of summer than the beautiful aroma of flowers, and the favored flowers of brewers are hops. Our brand new summer ale, Fleur de Houblon (Hop Flowers), is brewed to bring the many elements of summer into a refreshing and easy-to-drink Belgian-style ale.

Fleur de Houblon is a rich gold color with distinct floral hops in the aroma that follow through in the taste. Whole-cone Bravo hops are used to impart their earthy, fruity, and floral aromas and flavors. The body and flavor are clean and dry, with pleasing complexity and spicy notes from both primary and secondary fermentation with our unique Ommegang house yeast.

Available for a limited time in 1/2 BBLs and 12oz bottles every summer.

Scythe & Sickle

Scythe and Sickle is Ommegang’s foray into honoring the harvest season. Using barley, oats, wheat, and rye, we’ve brought the mood of fall to life with vibrant and flavorful passion.

Farming is about precision, timing and care. At Ommegang we place the same emphasis a farmer has for his crops into the creation of our beers. Scythe and Sickle is a testament to the craft and care of farming, from which our farmstead-brewed beers benefit greatly.

Brewed with balance in mind, Scythe & Sickle reveals a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with light toastiness and gentle sweetness. Bright amber in color from the mixed malts, the beer is balanced with delicate hopping to counter rather than overpower the malt profile.

Available for a limited time in 1/2 BBLs and 12oz bottles every fall.

Adoration

Ommegang Adoration, brewed in the authentic style of Belgian winter, or noel beer, is dark, malty and assertively spiced.

Adoration is best sipped before a roaring fire. It would also be a tasty accompaniment to dark roasts and wild game. Even at 10% abv, the beer is well balanced and not at all hot or fiery. The dark malts give it lush, malty flavors and aromas, complemented by the five spices, including coriander, orange peel, mace, cardamom and grains of paradise. Hopping is modest, as befits such a beer.

Available for a limited time in 12oz bottles and 1/6 kegs every winter.
